Rolling Stone Sued For Text Messaging Spam
from the a-text-message-gathers-no-moss dept
Rolling Stone publisher, Wenner Media, has been hit with a class action lawsuit over spam text messages that were used to aggressively promote Rolling Stone, US Weekly and Men’s Journal. Of course, it’s not clear that this is actually illegal. The lawsuit is based on a law that forbids the automatic dialing of marketing phone calls to mobile phones, but it’s not clear if that actually applies to SMS messages as well.
